There is a crucial need in the mainland regions of
Nigeria to enhance the development of wind technology and engineering, which is
essential for the designing of Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS). The
Weibull Probability Density Function (PDF) with two parameters is widely
accepted and commonly utilized for modelling, characterizing and predicting
wind resource and wind power, as well as assessing optimum performance of WECS.
Therefore, it is paramount to precisely estimate the scale and shape parameters
for all regions or sites under observation. In this research, the daily wind
data obtained from measurements covering 11 years (2000 to 2010) for four
different locations (Port Harcourt, Ikeja, Kano and Jos) was analysed and the
Weibull parameters determined. Three methods are presented for estimating
Weibull parameters (Shape and Scale) namely; Mean Standard Deviation Method
(MSDM), Energy Pattern Factor Method (EPFM), Method of Moments (MOM), and the
method that gives more accurate estimation for the Weibull parameters was
Energy Pattern Factor Method (EPFM). Of the three methods, MSDM gave the
closest and accurate value of the wind speed for all the stations followed by
MOM and then EPFM. In terms of
distribution, EPFM gave a better performance compared to the others, followed
by MOM and MSDM respectively.
